British Airways prepares new European routes for take-off

British Airways customers will be spoilt for choice this winter, with another two new routes launching from Heathrow.

From October 25th British Airways will start flying three times a week to Reykjavik in Iceland and twice a week to Salzburg in Austria, from December 5th.

Flights are on sale from today and the additional routes will see the number of new destinations launched from the airline in 2015 rocket to 20, with eight of them flying from Heathrow.

Lynne Embleton, British Airways’ director of strategy and business units, said: “These two new routes will be a great addition to British Airways’ ever expanding short-haul network.

“Reykjavik is a new destination for us, and customers will now have the convenience of flying from Heathrow as well as Gatwick to Salzburg.”

Both cities are famous for film and music. Reykjavik, already a popular dance music destination has also provided a back drop for popular series ‘Game of Thrones’ and Salzburg is famous as the home of the Von Trapp Family in classic film ‘The Sound of Music.’

The three times a week service to Reykjavik will operate from Heathrow on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

The twice-weekly service to Salzburg will operate on Saturday and Sunday.
